Bowel and Breast Screening services excellent

You asked what is working well . Just turned 60 , my birthday present from IOM GOV was a bowel screening pack !!

Great worked a treat - good system and prompt reporting.

Likewise mammography - just sat down when taken in for X rays. Got the results back within a week. Brilliant  - no reason why any one should should not take part.

Great team - many thanks

Why the contribution is important

Screening programmes should be promoted - save pain , agony and money in the long run

    I am most concerned about recall procedures.

    I was lucky enough to be in London with my children when I became unwell and thanks to their 10 day referral system when cancer is suspected, I was referred to Guys and quickly diagnosed with bowel cancer.

    Here in the Isle of Man I had had bowel polyps removed five years earlier but no recall or further checks.

    Thank God for the efficiency of the NHS but even more so NHS UK.

    Consideration should be given to reviewing the need and effectiveness of screening programmes - should they be focused on those who may be considered 'high risk' in the first instance?
